Agree. Although I do make a confession. I went into a supermarket once to get some food for a fry up with a seriously heavy hangover. I had some orange juice in my basket as well and was suddenly overcome with a raging thirst that had to be quenched as I was queuing up at the checkouts.

Am I forgiven ?

My indicators have recently packed up completely on my 13 year old car having gone through death throes for about 2 months when they would occasionally work if i aplied enough pressure to them. So I annoy you. Although I suspect that was already the case. If it helps I have bought a new indicator stalk today on eBay so hopefully soon won't have to stick my arm out of the window anymore like someone from the 1960's.

I can't believe I've not mentioned this before - automatic doors that do not open quickly enough, causing me to break my step & have to wait for them to open. They're supposed to facilitate my progress, not aggravate it.

Breville's new "kettles" so unecessarily savvy, got one in my household for some stupid reason. What is wrong with a normal pour kettle?! My old kettle's filter has broke so I am stuck between drinking tea and coffee caked in limescale or using this pretentious piece of crap. The limescale goes down very well(!)

Yes. I'm old enough to remember when they actually reported the news and didn't call in so called experts on every subject.

Not only that - when there is something to report the main news reader will tell us all about it, then they will go the reporter at the scene saying something like this " Can you talk us through the mood locally, how are people feeling" etc etc. This reporter will simply repeat what the first one says. Then its back to the studio to talk to the expert. Total overkill.

And last Friday the main news story was about Andy Fkin Murray announcing his retirement. Ahead of Brexit, Syria, Migration etc etc.

My problem with dictionaries is you pretty much have to know how to spell the word to be able to find it, which was more or less the reason for looking the word up in the first place.

Thankfully Google understands my dilemma! (Dilemma being a case in point!)

In that index, they should have a brief description so you can see if the word is the correct one you are looking for before going to the main entry.

Proof reading and signing off on a document, only to find an error in it when you receive the official document.

The most annoying thing being there is absolutely no one to blame but myself as the error was there in the signed off copy.

Exactly!

To be honest, it never crossed my mind that proofread would be one word, and it is one of those situations that gets past the grammar/spell check.

I did find this:

Quote:

Is it proofreader, proof reader or proof-reader?

Many people have asked Future Perfect about the spelling of ‘proofreader’ and ‘proofreading’.

To explain this, let’s first think about the technical names for writing words like this:

proof reading [spelling as two words]
proof-reading [hyphenated compound noun]
proofreading [closed spelling as one word]

Similarly:

proof reader [open spelling as two words]
proof-reader [hyphenated compound noun]
proofreader [closed spelling as one word]

If you search Google, you will find about 3.5m search results as a closed spelling (3), with only 1.5m as open (1) or hyphenated (2). Of course, this only reports what people are using and not what is right and wrong to write. However, the two are linked!

Future Perfect is not behind the times, when it comes to realising that we are using a living and changing language. Words are made up and evolve all the time.

Interestingly, though, this word has followed the standard etymological pattern of change which many words go through, over time, ie it begins as an open spelling as two words (1), moves through being a hyphenated compound noun (2) and ends up as a closed spelling as one word (3).

So, it would be most up to date to use this as (3): ‘proofreader’ and ‘proofreading’

Sounds like I'm just "old school"!

I may have mentioned this before but if not then I believe it's worth mentioning again and again...

Supermarket morons who have deemed it fit to introduce mini trolleys for kids to push around their shops when times are busy. Morrison's in this case.

Especially around the Christmas period.

Now I'm not one to usually frequent the likes of Morrison's. Their crinkle cut gherkins being the only reason I visit but I asked a member of staff the reason for the kiddy trolly lark and was told that it eased the younger consumer into the shopping experience.

Needless to say that I'm on a new trek for a less chavvy kind of crinkle cut gherkin.

The search continues...

One of my DILís has one.

I canít decide whether it makes her look like a boar or a bull.

If I hadnít watched the new Gilllette advert Iíd have tried pulling it to see if it works properly on all species who have them fitted.

I would sneak into her room at night with some string tie one end round the snot ring the other end around the bedside cabinet.......Then set off the fire alarm.

Supermarket morons who have deemed it fit to introduce mini trolleys for kids to push around their shops when times are busy. Morrison's in this case.

Especially around the Christmas period.

Now I'm not one to usually frequent the likes of Morrison's. Their crinkle cut gherkins being the only reason I visit but I asked a member of staff the reason for the kiddy trolly lark and was told that it eased the younger consumer into the shopping experience.

Needless to say that I'm on a new trek for a less chavvy kind of crinkle cut gherkin.

The search continues...


You donít have kids, do you?

I do but he's nearly 26.
I love kids but I don't see the need for them to shove mini trollys around an already busy supermarket.
****** mental.

Then there must be some proper scientific research that you can quote to back up your personal observations.

Good luck. :D


People who query personal observations by demanding peer-reviewed, scientific studies to prove it! :D

Does it auto correct or just change random words to what can only be their Klingon equivalent for no reason?

The weird ear thing where someone pieces/makes/I don’t know how the freaks do it, a hole in their ear lobe and inserts some implement in it. WTF is all that about?
